Best Time of Year for a New Lawn
Contrary to popular belief that the springtime is the best time to plant a new lawn, it’s actually during the early fall! During the month of September in Rhode Island, temperatures are starting to cool off, the sun isn’t as directly overhead, and there’s no more competition from weeds. Early to mid fall also sees plenty of rainfall throughout New England, which means you’ll be saving money on your water bill.
Installing a sod lawn or hydroseeding during the spring is risky due to the fact that the seeds will be competing with weeds, bugs, and other pests. You and your family are also hoping to get outside and enjoy your outdoor space and it’s hard to do that when you have to stay off the grass for a few weeks.
For those who don’t need a new lawn immediately, Premier Landscape recommends hydroseeding. Hydroseeding is a slurry of water, grass seed, and other nutrients to help speed up the germination process. With the proper lawn care and correct installation from our professionals, you should start to see progress by the end of the first week. Want a functional lawn right away? Opt for sod installation. A new lawn in the fall means that you’ll be able to enjoy your outdoor space right away the following spring!
